saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t

a time when the grown-ups have got to do their jobs. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. >> we begin tonight with the continuing effort to assess the damage and begin the cleanup from hurricane sandy. president obama traveled to new jersey today, the state hardest hit by the massive storm to meet with hurricane victims and state officials led by republican governor chris christie. the two men toured southern new jersey on the ground and from the air over flooded streets, flattened houses and piers washed out to sea. reporters did not accompany the president and governor christie as they flew on marine one, the president's helicopter. governor christie, who had been spending most of his days prior to the storm attacking the president on the campaign trail, today thanked him. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal c
showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundation and left parts of the coast under water. new york city also dealing with devastating floods. the subway remains closed after damage to the system was called the worst in its 108-year history. meanwhile, massive fire in a beachfront neighborhood in queens, new york, destroyed nearly 100 homes overnight and into the morning. firefighters have been blocked from getting to the fire due to the high floodwaters. and as we told you yesterday, a construction crane that collapsed due to high winds remain dang top a 74-floor luxury high rise, thousands were ordered to leave nearby buildings. nearly 8 million homes are still without power today across 20 states. the worst of it is in new york, new jersey and pennsylvania. right now i want to bring in dillon dryer. thank you for joining us. just run through a brief outline of what's going on. give us a sense of the depth and the duratio
that chris christie, if i can be political for a second in the midst of this, chris christie is the guy who gave the keynote address at the republican convention. and chris christie has nothing but -- has had nothing so far nothing but good things to say about the president. that's nothing the president needs to talk about. that's nothing any of his aides or advisers or campaign people need to talk about. but it won't go unnoticed as chuck says in this media environment. >> let's look at what governor christie of new jersey had to say today on the "today" show and on "morning joe." >> i was on the phoned a might nid again with the president personally. he's expedited the declaration of new jersey as a disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over this and deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely needs it. it's been very good working with the president and his administration. >> he also responded
is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights can
the election this is also being viewed through a political lens. governor chris christie, a romney surrogate, will show the president the destruction, while new york mayor michael bloomberg politely declined a visit. this morning the president got a substantial briefing on what's happening and the federal support that's being provided for the recovery. some are calling this a commander in chief moment. but at the very least, this hurricane has complicated a very close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an amer
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>
jersey and the president will tour the devastation with the chief executive new jersey chris christy. >> gretchen: when the president comes the city is shut down . the city can't have security detail and anything like that at all. but he will go to new jersey which is your home eric. >> i am trying to figure out why. i get it he wants to see the damage. please come can go and sign the check to help fema to sign over the money . chris christie was on saying that we have gotten acess to the funs we are going to need. i am not sure what touring the sight. >> steve: it is smart politics for the president. there is chris christie helping the people on the jersey shore. it is essentially politically if you talk about it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see
the president of the united states as he tours with chris christie today? >> i think they want to hear specific things about how they're going to get help and how soon it's going to come. when people think about the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i
: new jersey governor chris christie -- governor chris christie ordered casinos in atlantic city to close down afternoon sunday afternoon. >> we should not underestimate the impact of this storm and we shouldn't assume the predictions will be wrong. >> reporter: forecasters predict sandy could merge with winter weather systems to become a superstorm. causing massive power outages and flooding in major cities along the east coast. here in new york city, people are still enjoying a typical fall day on coknee island but -- coney island but by this time sunday the wind and rain will be here. the family dressed up to celebrate halloween on the boardwalk just in case sandy washes out the holiday. >> on wednesdays -- the least chance of rain and hopefully it will hold out and let them go trick-or-treating. >> reporter: but the national hurricane center says it could linger over the week. rankle pinkston, cbs news, coney island, new york. >> in the caribbean, at least 58 people are now dead. thousands of homes were destroyed or heavily damage. . jamaica, cuba and the bahamas took direct
new jersey governor chris christie on a tour of some of the areas hardest hit. we are also getting a better look this hour at what governor christie is calling the destruction too widespread for words. that includes long branch, 50 miles south of new york city. right now you're looking at a swimming pool, standby, full of debris from a building torn to shreds by wind and water. the sand stripped away and piled in the streets exposing beach heeds. we go south to spring lake, new jersey. that town is over 100 years old. a lot of folks go for vacation and the weekend that kind of thing. the longest portion of the boardwalk in the state of new jersey. you can see the remnants of it at the water line, the pounding surf tore off each and every board. further down the coastline there is total destruction in the beach community of seaside heights, home of an iconic amusement park, and now look at it. something about these images, something about the roller coaster, the ferris wheel in the ocean, it's just wrong. for generations families have spent their summers here, trace gallagher record

chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now people are hurting. >> that's right. there was a rumor yesterday that mitt romney might go to new jersey to survey some of the damage. chris christie was asked about that. he essentially brushed that off and wa't interested. he was interested in working with the president in relief efforts and didn't want to see presidential politics in new jersey. i thought that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> chris, where does the situation of the campa
of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edg
and chris christie -- >> chris christie hasn't endorsed him. >> the fact is, he said he endorsed his role -- >> his leadership. >> his leadership, and i think that was very critical. it did raise the whole issue of, what is the role of government? and i think a lot of people stood back and watched some of the destruction there, i think the affects of sandy are going to be talked about for a long time on this presidential race, coming where they did when romney has had some momentum going into it. we'll see if he does coming out of it. >> >> belva: i have to return to odette here. we talked about polls. where are issues that these groups of any of the grouches -- . >> looking beyond the numbers, they were able to glean direct insight from journalists in a weekly election series that we did and really the pulse points that were really critical. latino voters feel the crux of democracy means to them was being taken away. some significant shift that we saw, with filipinos, not the field poll, but an naa survey was released also recently, and it showed for the first time a really significant s

. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down the eastern seaboard. chris christie, the governor of new jersey, his state was hardest hit. he had made some very favorable comments. over the last couple of months they made some really favorable comments. so, here is a moment in which a president can show great leadership, an opportunity to demonstrate the power of the white house or incumbency, or he can screw it up and bought everything, losing the election because of it. he is probably tilting towards the leadership right now. there have not been any serious critiques of the obama handling of the storm in the aftermath. what is mitt romney to do? he is in this middle place, where there is no role for an opposition candidate. no accepted script for what one of these candidates is supposed to do when one of these storms come along. there is a risk for both sides and a benefit that advantages obama more than mitt romney. >> governor romney will be in florida for these three rallies. also, vice-president joe biden. there it is. we will show you governor romney in flori
